Our Rise & Fire Campetition is unlike any other “camp” out there.

It’s a high-level training program designed for our athletes to reach their maximum potential through deep mental and physical involvement at the Quarterback & Skill Player positions. In 2018 we will be holding our annual Rise & Fire events in Los Angeles on January 20th, Orlando on February 10th, Dallas on March 10th and in Chicago the weekend of June 2-3. We also have our 1st annual Futures Camps for Youth athletes in LA (January 21st) and Chicago (June 10th). Each event is slightly different from the others. Some will include just Quarterbacks and Wide Receivers (Orlando for example). Others will include additional positions (Chicago for example will include RB's, OL & DL). Our Chicago Rise & Fire is our flagship training event and is conducted over two days. The other events in LA, Orlando and Dallas are one-day events.

Rise & Fire Campetition Information

Get noticed by collegiate coaches in attendance

This event be our second year camp where college coaches from every level will attend the campetition. We expect D1, D2, D3, NAIA and Juco coaches in Elmhurst on June 2-3. Last year 14 universities attended the Chicago event. A full list of the college programs attending the event will be announced throughout the sign up period.

Train and compete with some of the top high school athletes

The HIGH SCHOOL TRAINING will include ELITE LEVEL athletes at the varsity-level or underclassmen athletes with potential for high level varsity potential, primarily in the classes of 2019, 2020 and 2021. We will be accepting a small handful of athletes in the 2022 class, and a VERY exclusive small group of QB's in the 2023 class. ALL athletes MUST be pre-approved by the Next Level staff to attend this camp. Athletes will be required to email their Hudl link to greg@nxtlevelatx.com.

This is NOT a typical SHOWCASE camp. This is a high level instructional training program with a competitive component built in to challenge our athletes.

An exclusive event... Invite and RSPV is required to attend

While we want to provide every athlete with an opportunity to train and compete, we also want to be clear that the Rise & Fire event is not for every athlete. This is a high level, highly competitive training environment for varsity level athletes. We will be reviewing Hudl video for EVERY athlete for submission to the camp.

#BATTLETESTED... Dress for the job you want, not the job you have

All Rise & Fire Quarterbacks will receive exclusive Next Level training gear from Battle Football. Expect to bring cleats, socks and your base layer gear. The rest will be taken care of. All offensive (WR's & TE's) and defensive (DB's & WR's) skill players will receive a pair of Battle Dri-Fit Shorts and a Rise & Fire Battle Dri-Fit performance shirt with a jersey number to identify them to both the media and college coaches in attendance. 

Several QB's will be part an exclusive drawing where they will not only receive their gear in advance through delivery, but will also receive several additional Next Level Battle Football items that the rest of the athletes will not. In order to be part of this random drawing, QB's must register for the 2017 event in 2018. 

*QB's are required to bring their own football.

Bring an appetite for comeptition, but leave your lunch at home

ROAR Sports Drink is the official hydration beverage of Rise And Rise and Next Level Athletix. The ROAR beverage brand will be on site all day Saturday & Sunday to provide our athletes with their signature sports drink. Every athlete will also be provided with Jimmy John's for lunch on Saturday and Sunday. Food allergies will not be addressed at the camp. If any athlete has a food allergy, they are requested to provide their own lunch.

The hotel is 9 minutes from the training location at Plunkett Park. And downtown Elmhurst is filled with quaint shops and great restaurants.

All athletes and their parents will be provided with shuttle service each day to Plunkett Park and then back to the hotel. More information on this service will be made available to those families coming from out of town. 

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What ages can attend Rise & Fire Camps?

    Typically we only accept High School level athletes. However, in some rare cases, we will take athletes going into the 8 th grade for the following school year. These athletes need pre-approval from the Next Level coaching staff to be allowed to register.

  • What can/can't I bring to the event?

    Football cleats are encouraged. You do not need a helmet or any pads. All QB's MUST bring their own football. Please bring the football you use during your games.

  • Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

    Next Level Athletix Founder/QB Engineer Greg Holcomb can be contacted by phone at 773-615-5060. Or by email at greg@nxtlevelatx.com.

  • Is my registration / ticket refundable?

    Ticket sales are FINAL. Your registration ABSOLUTELY CANNOT be refunded once you register. Please do not register unless you know you are absolutely going to attend. We are capping this event to make sure we maintain a high coach-to-athlete ratio. So purchasing a slot and closing out registration means another athlete was unable to register. Therefore, we will not provide a refund. However, any athlete can transfer the cost of the Rise & Fire Camp to another Next Level camp or training session(s).
